We asked Ford Tech hotline about this for one of our customers and they told us no.
But here are the specs for it.You can prolong it by not setting park brake or if you press the brake or accel during the final 30 secs. before shutdown.

Engine shutdown occurs under the following conditions:
• Vehicle speed below 1.6 km/h (1 MPH)
• Engine coolant temperature is greater than 15 °C (60 °F)
• Transmission in the PARK or NEUTRAL position
• Engine shutdown occurs in 5 minutes with the parking brake applied
• Engine shutdown occurs in 15 minutes without the parking brake applied
• The engine shutdown time may be increased in regeneration mode or scan tool mode (60
minutes maximum)
• Brake or accelerator pedal application in the 30 second window resets the engine shutdown
• Power take off (PTO)/auxiliary idle control system not active

Diesel. Reduce power lite turned on. Shut off engine and started back up - lite is off. Can it be driven?

Jerry, Drive to a good shop. So many things can cause reduced power light unfortunately. The first step would be to get the truck hooked up to a scanner/computer and have the computer scanned for trouble codes. One thing that you could try is to drain the water from the water separator that is mounted on the frame under drivers front door. If the PCM picks up on water, power is reduced until water is removed/drained. It could be an exhaust sensor that is reading faulty. Unfortunately from here its impossible to tell you exactly what the fault is because there are just so many engine sensor inputs that could cause your problem. Check the attached links, forums,instruction and guides, Good luck

I hav ea 2008 ford f550 6.4 and my motor just died on me with no warning and now the motor won't turn over and no lights are on

Sounds like a discharged battery. I'd recommend checking charging system. You could have a bad alternator or a broken connection. With luck - the latter.

Have you checked the idle control sensor? Have you adjusted the idle? It may be a bad map sensor. Usually, if it is a map sensor, it will dies occasionally.

Problems With Cold Starts.

I know for some models that Ford had another Diesel timer for the glowplugs for severe weather. This timer was meant to keep the glowplugs on longer.

I had an 87 Ford Diesel and the top wires on the timer were tight and clean. For some reason when I loosened them and retightened the wires the timer worked better.

Many truckers use a Diesel additive and usually the fuelstops have modified Diesel for cold climates. I understand there is a Cetane rating for Diesel and Premium Diesel may help.

On a 2008 f550 after driving 10 to 15 km the dash warning lights come on the gauges jump around and there is no throttle response. After a minute or two it clears up and runs fine.

Check the alternator out put,if possible,check it when this occurs,out put at the battery when it is running,should be 13.65,to 14.25 volts.
